Vettel shares thoughts on 2019 Ferrari challenger

Sebastian Vettel shared his excitement after Ferrari unveiled their 2019 challenger on Friday at Maranello. The new car comes ahead of a year which sees several changes at Maranello, including Mattia Binotto's promotion to team principal, but Vettel has backed his new boss to be a success.

Vettel, Binotto and newcomer Charles Leclerc were all in attendance as the SF90 was presented to the world on Friday, sporting a new look to go with the many changes at Ferrari.

The German lamented forgetting to pack his race suit, but he will not have to wait long to get his hands on the car, with preseason testing beginning in Barcelona next week.

"I think we are all excited," Vettel said in front of the SF90.

"You start to see the car, little bits of it and then you see it slowly come together but today is the first time to see it altogether.

"Incredible to see when everything comes together. Now I'm really excited and can't wait to get in.

"I am looking forward to this year. I believe the team is on the right path and hopefully we can keep improving."

Binotto has replaced Maurizio Arrivabene after a reported power struggle between the pair, having previously served as technical director.

His time at Ferrari dates back to their previous golden era with Michael Schumacher in the cockpit, leaving Vettel in no doubt that the new man in charge is the right one.

"Obviously new in the role but Mattia has been a part of this team longer than most in the room," said Vettel.

"He has been around a long, long time and we have worked together the last five years.

"It will be a new way to work together but I'm looking forward to it."
